Hi,
I have recently bought a SSD m.2 drive, that I want to put into my macbook (mid 2014 2.6ghz 13") but it just do not fit, there may be someone who has an idea for how I have set it in or a link to an adapter?
Apple uses a propriety connector. I don't think an adapter is available as such, however sometimes people sell Apple SSD drives on ebay.

The drive that you have pictured is an SATA device.
Your MBPro uses a PCIe blade interface.
You can't use the card that you purchased internally.
The only internal storage that you can use is the PCIe type. For all practical purposes, the only PCIe replacements are those that are made for Apple.
You can usually search on Ebay to find PCIe storage that has been pulled from other Macs.

Another choice would be external... Such as this one from OWC

Usually it is a good idea to research things BEFORE buying them, not AFTER.

There are NO upgrades for any retina MacBook Pro younger than 2013. All models after that use a propriety PCIe connectino and no third party makes an upgrade at the moment (and it will likely never happen).

The only way to get more storage is to buy a used SSD from another machine from eBay, they are very expensive and rare.

If you had done your research you would have known that.
